Transcript of A Plant Cells comparison to a Factory
The nucleus is the control center of the cell, it contains the nucleolus. The nucleus contains chromosomes as well as DNA. The nucleus is similar to the owner of the factory, it makes all the decisions about everything that goes on inside it. The mitochondria is the power house of the cell, this is where cellular respiration occurs. This part of the cell converts oxygen and glucose into carbon dioxide and energy (ATP) . The power generator of a factory works like a mitochondria of a plant cell, it generates the power and converts the fuel source into energy. The cytoplasm is made up of the cells internal contents, it is composedof 65% water and contains enzymes and dissolved nutrients like amino acids and sugars. The floor of the factory can be compared to the cytoplasm of a plant cell because it is where most of the products are assembled, finished and shipped. The cell wall is made up of cellulose and it provides a stiff, rigid environment. (Keeps the cell in one piece) The wall of a factory resembles the cell wall, they both keep the structure in one piece. The cell membrane is made up of phospholipids and proteins. It gives the cell shape and controls what goes in and out of the cell. It regulates the exchange of vital substances, and communicates with other cells. The doors on a factory work like the cell membrane because they control what comes through and what leaves. It regulates the exchange of products. Chloroplasts contain chlorophyll and performs photosynthesis. Turns sunlight into food and energy. The vacuole can be compared to the factory storage room because like the vacuole the storage room stores all the necessary items needed for the factory to function A plant cells comparison to a factory. The vacuole stores food, water, waste, and other materials. The vacuole also keeps the cell membrane strong and keeps the plant upright. Mitochondria Power Generator Vacuole Storage Room Nucleus Owner Chloroplast Cell Membrane Doors Chloroplasts work alot like solar panels, because both convert sunlight into energy. Solar Panels Cell Wall Wall Cytoplasm Floor A plant cell can be compared to a factory in many ways, in this presentation we will be comparing 7 parts of a plant cell to 7 similarly functioning parts in a factory.
